Astral plain is a plane of existence and perception paralleling
the physical plane. It can be accessed during our sleeping hours
during out-of-body experiences, It is then when our spirit can
travel into other dimensions where we can perceive the beings
of that world. This is the area where psychics
make contact with their spirit
guides, and see things yet to happen in the future. Unlike
the material world, which is made up of atoms and molecules,
the astral plane is a world of thoughts. Because of this it
is not three-dimensional, it is an area that is all around and
all encompassing. Objects can be viewed from all directions
at the same time and emotions become visible and tangible, as
are material objects on the earth plain.
mystic and psychic Helena
Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society said that
the Astral Plane consisted of seven levels, each inhabited by
an assortment of different beings. The astral plane is believed
to be far more mutable than the physical and is said to be changed

is thought to have many entities and levels to it and operates
at a much higher frequency than the physical plane that we inhabit.
The astral plane is also sometimes termed the world of emotion
or world of illusion, and corresponds to Blavatsky's Kamic Plane.
Some forms of Theosophy state that the astral world vibrates
its energy through astral atoms that exist alongside and within
the physical world without conflict. According to esoteric doctrine,
there are a number of different planes, or levels of reality.
The names usually given to these planes are listed in order
of materiality, rising from the denser to the finer. These are
the Physical, Astral, Mental, Buddhic, and Nirvanic.

various nature spirits, such
as fairies, pixies, elves, trolls, fauns, imps, and goblins.
These beings have their own forms but can assume any appearance
at will. Under ordinary conditions they are not visible to physical
sight, but they have the power to materialise at will. This
is also the place of the demonic kingdom where seriously dysfunctional
people go when they pass over.
higher realms are inhabited by the Ascended masters and other
sages and saintly people who have lived their lives on earth
at some time in the past. The levels above this are occupied
by beings who have never lived a life as humans; these are the

ways similar to the earth plane. And that people carry on living
their lives in much the same way as they do here on earth. The
difference being that people do not have to eat, sleep or function
as humans. It is a place of abundant love, but there isn't physical
masters are enlightened spiritual beings who once lived on earth
and who have undergone the process of ascension. Many ascended
masters have chosen to stay connected with souls on earth in
order to help and support their development. Throughout history,
there have been stories of individuals who have reached a higher
